The most common ways to effective control dust from industrial processes include dust control/collection booths, downdraft tables, dust collectors ducted to single or multiple workstations, and collection arms capturing the dust at the source. Dust and smoke are collected from a broad spectrum of processes, including sanding, welding, soldering, mixing, blasting, powder coating, deburring, and finishing.
Mist is generated during many machining processes, and may be collected and filtered to achieve a good working environment and also to protect sensitive electronic controls and equipment. Mist collectors may be mounted directly on the machine, or large, central collectors may be ducted to a number of machining processes for efficient collection from throughout the industrial facility. Custom hoods are often the most effective way to control the mist and insure efficient collection for ducting to a collector or to an exhaust vent.
Fumes from welding, soldering, plasma cutting, materials handling, chemical processes, and other operations should be contained, collected, and filtered in order to provide comfort and a healthy environment for workers. Typical fume control systems are designed with fume extractor arms or custom hooding, fan units, ducting, industrial air cleaners, and/or exhaust vents.
Particulate From Cutting or Grinding
To control dust from cutting or grinding operations, downdraft tables or dust booths are often chosen because they effectively capture the dust at the source and provide freedom of movement even when working on larger materials. Other common solutions include collection arms or custom hoods ducted to central dust collectors and ambient air cleaners.
The dust generated from woodworking operations may be ducted from multiple tools to a central dust collector and/or filtered from the air by an ambient air cleaner system.
Our free-hanging air cleaners from Airflow Systems are at work in a broad range of industrial facilities, providing effective filtration of welding smoke and fumes, wet and dry grinding dust, oil mist smoke, sanding dust, and powders. Typical applications include welding operations, woodworking, machine shops, and auto body repair shops.
